"Al Qaeda is run by the CIA" is a completely stupid theory. Would other extremists in the Middle East not make a point of this if it was true to damage America? Or is everyone in the Middle East controlled by the USA?

Next thing Dekota will be saying that Obama is claiming to have hunted down and killed OBL on his own and with his bare hands. Now that WOULD give Obama a boost!

maybe its just me, but surely you have to be a bit stupid to believe such a ridiculous series of events? it can't be me alone who feels insulted by the shabby way this fake event has been presented to the public? the americans can't even be bothered to lie well anymore.
assuming you're right, let's analyze the two possible scenarios which follow:
1. He's still free and in hiding
as others have pointed out, why would OBL not take this incredible opportunity to discredit the US? Why would the US take such a huge risk, knowing that their lie could be exposed any moment?
2. He was captured by the US and is being held and interrogated somewhere
in that case, the most important thing would be to keep this fact secret. If they wanted to draw attention away from his alleged death as quickly as possible, as would be advisable in this situation, they failed miserably. If it's all a lie, why lie unconvincingly?
Furthermore, if he's alive but captured, putting him on trial would be the better option, because not only would it discredit any conspiracy theories, but it would have much more image-friendly effect. Being the ones who captured and put to justice OBL is far to strong a card not to play, especially with the elections coming up. (Instead the US are now being criticised for their approach, with many questioning whether the killing is justifiable)
Therefore his death, for all its mysteries, is still the most logical explanation - so I guess you have to be mentally ill not to believe the Bin Laden story

I don't think we'll ever know if I'm honest. But if they DID kill him, I think they shoulda just kept quiet and told no-one, because now all of Bin Ladens little followers, who saw him as their God! Are going to want to bomb us all. So now everyone's worrying about that.
I'm pretty sure they didn't think of him as their God, as muslims believe their is only one God, Allah, and that is the whole reason for the bombings

Big flaw in these conspiracy theories. If Bin Laden in fact isn't dead... why hasn't he released one of his videos? Why have Al Qaeda confirmed it?
Because these conspiracy theories suggest Al-Qaeda is a US creation.

Its a load of complete nonsense. They cannot even go two days without changing fundemental parts of their story. Choping and changing the story as you go is a sign of bull**** imo. How hard is it for them to establish wether there was a firefight or not? Bin Laden either resisted or he didnt! Theres noway you can make a mistake like that.

It gets even sillier. They apparently killed him retrieved his body and then dumped the ultimate proof of his death into the sea This is the most notorious terrorists for more than a decade and they knew everyone would be demanding proof but they couldnt even hold onto his body for a day or two.

Well, no because surely if he was alive bin Laden could have released a video which would have made the US look ridiculously stupid...

Unless you want to construct a ridiculously far-fetched conspiracy theory...

I definitely believe they killed him in the compound, but for me the only fishy thing is the story of what happened in there. Was he captured then shot dead or is the American story true? The thing is, we will never know.

ultimately, the americans didn't want to take him alive with the implications that would bring. the seals wouldnt take a chance that he could be wearing a suicide vest. why does it matter if the story changed? the americans spoke pretty quick to get the news out, but as it was reviewed more details were understood. i'm sure their thoughts were on other things that the small details.

There's no point in arguing with a conspiracy theorist. If you acquire evidence to disprove their theory, they'll either modify their theory or dismiss the evidence as part of the conspiracy.

I believe he's dead, it'd be stupid to assume he definetely wasn't. A slight possibility is that he could be captured and in questioning/torturing, but I don't think that'd be kept well under wraps to be honest.

However, the fact the story keeps changing etc. does make me think something fishy is going on. I'm not a big believer of conspiricies but something seems not quite right about this.

WEAPONS OF MASS DISTRUCTION! They are there! We're 100% sure! Lets go and kill some brown people now!

Good old America. No they can never lie or do wrong! Everything they say is 100% fact. Gulf of Tonkin happened because they said it did!

Who cares about the reasons, Bin Laden and Saddam were threats and why not stomp all over them and sort out the problem? Oh, because it is easier to be selfish and to ignore these problems....
